Houston Person
In A Sentimental Mood

You have to hand it to Houston Person. In a time where jazz has become either mind-numbing, vacuous elevator music or a product of Emperor's-new-clothes pseudo-intellectuals passing off squeaks and squawks as music, Houston Person is content to make jazz that satisfies the basic need of audiences everywhere - communication. Knowing full well that great tunes become associated with memories of our life, Houston has programmed a selection of tunes that people have consistently requested around the country, tunes that mean something to the listener. Surrounded by his touring band, Houston offers a dozen standards, "Skylark", "All the Things You Are", "Deed I Do" and others. Beethoven himself once said, "Great music should go from the heart, to the heart." Judging from this record, that is a lesson well-learned by Houston Person.
